Derive department from People/Group column in a list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to create a list containing details about an individual. In addition to the unique content I will be adding to the list, I would like to display the person's department in a column. Is it possible to have a column displaying the Department Name for the person appearing in another person/group column?

    Column 1 would be populated with the username and would be a person-group column

    Column 2 would need to automatically return the department based for the individual identified in Column 1

    Sounds like something that should be simple but...

  • Yes you can get that


    Or try

    var thisDepartment = $().SPServices.SPGetCurrentUser({
    fieldName: "Department",
    debug: false
